MTN Nigeria Communications Plc (MTN) has announced that it has completed its conversion from a private company to a public company (Plc) and that all roads now clear for the telecoms giant to list on Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).

Speaking on the announcement, the MTN CEO, Ferdi Moolman, commented: “Our conversion to a Plc is a major step towards listing by introduction on the Nigerian Stock Exchange in the first half of 2019.

Nigeria is one of the largest markets within MTN’s portfolio and central to its growth strategy.

The upcoming listing is a key milestone for the MTN group and is part of its commitment to localisation in the markets in which it operates.

The conversion to a Plc is a legal requirement and key milestone in the preparatory process for MTN’s listing by introduction on The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).

MTN’s intended listing on The NSE will create a new telecoms asset class for investors and provide a wider group of Nigerians with a chance to participate in the MTN investment opportunity.
